This week's topic:
Top Ten Most Intimidating Books
(might be intimated by size, content, that everyone else loves it but you are sure you won't etc)
1. This book hasn't gotten a lot of positive feedback. At least that I've been exposed to. I've heard it's boring, especially the beginning, with a lot of characters and it can get confusing. I haven't heard/read about anyone loving this book. It's just too big to be boring.
2. I actually bought this box set recently. Game of Thrones is my favorite T.V. show. It's incredible! I have to read the books. I'm putting them off mostly because of the size and the amount of time I know I will have to invest in them. They are beasts! Also, this is one of those rare times that I don't want to know what happens before I see it on TV. So I can only read up until a certain point without getting spoiled and then who the hell knows when the author will release the next book. But I plan on reading the first 2 some time this year.
3. So.Much.Hype. One of the most hyped up books ever. I see it everywhere, hear about it everywhere. I've had it on my shelf for like 2 years. I just can't bring myself to read it. I don't want to be disappointed!
4. This one is so little but it still intimidates the hell out of me. Why? Because I hate classics and I came up with this great idea to make myself read 5 classics this year because I keep thinking that maybe I'm missing something great when in reality I just think I'm too dumb to absorb the old school dialogue and wordiness and boringness that classics represent to me. I have picked this classic in particular up like 10 times to start, and then I put it back down again. I don't like to have to think but so much when I read books.
5. I love The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings movies. The books scare me because I just don't think I'm going to like them. And not because of the content but because of the writing style. I don't like draggy books. I've heard parts of these books are draggy. But sooooo many people LOVE them. Maybe I'll start with The Hobbit..
6. I loved the movie The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I've heard that the book is different in a lot of ways. And I'm not sure this is one of those times where I will think the book is better than the movie. I do own this series, I just haven't been able to start it yet.
As a whole, I'm not intimidated easily by books. These are the only ones I can think of that I keep intentionally straying away from.
